ENERGIZE

ENERGIZE is a collaborative effort of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin (HU) and the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences Adlershof (IRIS). The goal of this project is to build and operate a beamline with a suitable end-station for materials science in the field of energy research. ENERGIZE will be dedicated to research on hybrid materials and energy efficient technologies.

Selected Applications:
  • Fundamental research into the electronic structure of new materials such as perovskite and 2D semiconductors
  • Optimization of interfaces in light emitting diodes, solar cells and photoelectrochemical elements for the production of storable fuels
  • Optimization of interfaces of opto-electronic components printed in the air

ENERGIZE will be dedicated to research on hybrid materials and energy efficient technologies. The beamline is currently under construction.

ENERGIZE is a collaborative effort of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin, the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin (HU) and the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences Adlershof (IRIS). The goal of this project is to build and operate a beamline with a suitable end-station for materials science in the field of energy research. The new dipole-PGM (plane grating mirror) beam-line is optimized for the 20 eV to 1.5 keV energy range, which is ideally suited to perform ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) measurements. In addition, an attenuator system will be installed, to allow measurements on radiation sensitive samples (<5 pA/cm² sample current).
